    Door wont open

    Had the same on mine , had to cut the door card its basically a lever inside that sticks , if you douse it in WD40 inside and lock and unlock a load of times , there is a slim chance it will free up , but its slim

    Unusual m62b44 issue

    Sitrep: Unknown history , e39 1999 540i / 6mt engine has been looked after , (signs of new chain guides and a few upgrades on car) Lightened single mass flywheel , m5 clutch , etc. standard airbox , afaik , standard map Issue: Basically when pulling up to a junction the revs will drop super low 400-500rpm , and occasionally cut out , making steering a little fun. no CEL Diagnosis so far: I've checked crankcase pressure and its 10mbar as expected (i think) i've fault code read , nothing (intermittent electronic thermostat issue , wouldn't cause cut out) i've checked best I can for air leaks with a test spray , nothing obvious Car is a bit rusty and has some water ingress inside the cabin from being stood , but not sure this would get into any electronics , its drive by cable not DBW IASV seems ok , cleaned it out with brake cleaner , no difference , when unplugged revs change Manifold gaskets are slightly blowy , got some to replace asap. I've ordered a set of plugs , done an oil and filter (oil came out didnt have obvious issues) , air filter is KN and has been oiled. Any input? Thanks
  14. non sport 1999 model although i'll make either fit
